Abstract
In 2000, the CDC/NIOSH consultant at the Pan American Health Organization office in Mexico presented a course on the conduct of workplace evaluations to two different audiences: physicians in their second year of an occupational medicine residency program and newly hired workplace inspectors with varying years of experience in diverse specialties (e.g., chemical engineering, medicine, nursing, social work, economics, and law). Despite an emphasis on practical problem solving and the use of interactive and participatory methods, participants had difficulty with a number of key concepts, such as the public health approach (vis-a-vis focus on the individual patient in the medical model), the concept of causal chains of events (vis-a-vis focus on immediate causes), and multifactoral approaches (vis-a-vis specialty-based). This presentation describes the approaches and solutions developed to overcome learning obstacles encountered during the implementation of the course. A separate presentation, Evaluation and solution of workers' health problems: Critical analysis in practice, describes the course design and content.
